Apple's Quality Control Woes in India:-

Apple is among the largest and most successful tech businesses, renowned for its unique products, like Apple's iPhone, iPad, and MacBook. Apple has established an image of superiority and quality, but India's production needs to improve its rate, and about 50 per cent of iPhone housings are being rejected. It is built on information from former Apple employees and outlines the problem of low yields at Tata's Hosur manufacturing facility. Apple's product engineers, and engineers who are from California and China are being shipped south to India to assist in setting up manufacturing facilities and train locals how to make products. The move is part of Apple's attempts to expand its supply chain away from China.

A ex- Apple worker who was informed about the matter said that operations in India aren't progressing at the rate they should because "there just isn't a feeling of urgency." The move of Apple to India can be seen as part of an ageing diversification strategy. Apple is looking to increase its presence in India. Jobs posted by the company indicate that the company has ambitions for India. Apple hopes to shift as much as 25 per cent from iPhone production into India in 2025 and up to 50 per cent in 2027. But infrastructure, logistics and tariffs are just a few reasons why the company is taking its time in India. As per an Apple employee, The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, an agreement for free trade between 10 regional countries, is helping Apple's growth across Southeast Asia. Apple's current situation in India is expected. Numerous multinational corporations face difficulties entering new markets, and India is the same. India is among the top economies increasing, and the large number of people living there makes it a desirable market for tech firms like Apple. Yet, India has unique problems, including the complex regulatory environment, inadequate infrastructure, and the high cost of imports. Apple's issues with quality control in India are broader than just India. Apple has had similar problems in other regions, like China. The firm's stringent quality control guidelines are a part of its determination to provide its customers with the finest possible products. The result has been tensions with suppliers who may need help to satisfy the standards.
